British police said they had detained a man who scaled the front gates of Queen Elizabeth's Buckingham Palace, nearly 37 years to the day after the most famous break-in at the monarch's home in central London.
Police said late Wednesday night that the 22-year-old man was arrested earlier that morning by specialist royal police officers.
The suspect is in police custody. Terrifyingly, a 33-year-old decorator called Michael Fagan entered her bedroom in July 1982 at 7.15 am.
Prince Andrew said: "The police have a hard job to do balancing security for the Royal Family and deterring intruders, and sometimes they get it wrong".
It will raise serious security concerns for the palace, and comes nearly exactly 37 years after Michael Fagan famously broke into the Queen's bedroom.
The London-born father-of-four also wandered barefoot through the Palace corridors, drank Prince Charles' wine and urinated in the food bowls of the Queen's corgis.
In May 2016, a man with a conviction for murder climbed over the wall and walked for about 10 minutes around the grounds of the palace before being arrested.

"How is it possible all these years later that someone can climb the fence and get right inside the grounds without being stopped immediately?"
A Palace source explained: "Of course this will be a matter of great interest to the Queen. The Queen's safety should be paramount".
A royal insider has told The Sun the intruder was in the palace unrestricted for several minutes.
"He was determined to get inside the palace and was banging down the doors but, thank goodness, this time everything was locked up".
During the incident Fagan smashed a large glass ashtray and threatened to slash his wrists.
It was the Queen's long-time aide Paul Whybrew - still employed by the Queen to this day - who came to the rescue.
